Barlow , Hollywood Cemetery is a half day at the least trip.  Get a good map at the visitors center .  It will cost you a buck or so .  It shows you were the famous are buried.  I had a list the last time I was there . 

Two US and one Confederate president .  Numerous Generals.  Rev War and Colonial leaders, Authors , children and wives of leaders and several just interesting headstones , memorials are there to see.

There is also a huge pyramid to honor the Confederate dead of Gettysburg who are buried all around the pyramid.  Pickett and his wife are there with them. 

A very sad headstone is the one for Longstreets children.   Also the grave of Pegram who was married and buried in a short few weeks .  His brother Willie is buried next to him. 

Jefferson Davis' grave with is statue is facing a huge headstone with the name Grant on it .  NOT THE Grant but still interesting .

The view of the river there is also interesting.  A place in Richmond not to miss .
